Registered pharmacist Ben Fuchs shared the latest in health information and treatments, as well as current trends in medicine, and the good vs bad of diet fads. He addressed C2C producer Tom Danheiser's recent bout with a pulmonary embolism, a kind of blood clot. It's important to keep the body's circulatory system active through movement, and slow deep breathing to oxygenate the blood, he advised.
Fat processing, he noted, is a problem that can particularly affect women. He recommends using fat dissolving nutrients such as probiotics, as well as digestive enzymes, bile salts, and lecithin granules. Regarding diets, Fuchs favors the CRON-diet, which stands for Caloric Restriction with Optimal Nutrition. By getting on a supplement program, people can eat less but still get needed nutrients without the calories, he remarked.
Regarding Parkinson's, he suggested that it's caused by an inflammatory condition, brought about by damaged cells. To treat inflammation, focus on digestive health by eliminating foods that could be causing problems, and take nutrients to build up the digestive track such as probiotics, fermented foods, cartilage-containing products, and glucosamine, in addition to stabilizing blood sugar, he outlined.
